On February 27, Morris Habitat for Humanity will celebrate its 11th Annual Hearts & Hammers Gala at the Meadow Wood Manor in Randolph from 6 to 10pm. Tickets are $250. The gala is Morris Habitat’s signature fundraiser to support the group’s efforts to build houses and create homes for families in need throughout Morris County. Morris Habitat is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; advocating for fair and just housing policies; and providing training and access to resources to help families improve their living conditions.
The event features hors d’oeuvres, a full-course meal and desserts; a silent auction; and music and dancing. The gala also recognizes three members of the Morris Habitat family who have given generously of their time and expertise: Peter Wentworth, Wentworth Associates, will receive the Founders Award; Travelers Insurance, the Corporate Partnership Award; and Jim Mullen, Esquire, the Beth Everett Award. Corporate sponsorships have always had a big impact on how much Morris Habitat can accomplish and they are still available for the event.
Morris Habitat serves the community in a very special way. As explained by Morris Habitat’s CEO, Blair Bravo, “Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials from individuals all the way up to corporations, Morris Habitat for Humanity builds and rehabilitates houses in partnership with families in need. Every dollar raised helps local hardworking families achieve the American dream of homeownership. Our yearly gala celebrates this commitment and those who support us.” The group hopes to achieve its goal of serving 200 new families over the next four years.
Tickets are now available. For more information, visit Morrishabitat.org/event/hearts-hammers-gala-feb-2016 or call Kathy Ritchey at 973-891-1934, ext.122 or email her at [email protected]
